Clean and convenient

It was a nice theater with reclining seats. I was on a business trip, the clerk was nice. The theater was across the street from our hotel.

Expect luxury electronic recliners and great location above metro. Don't expect luxury snacks or a wine bar, though. Strictly normal overpriced concessions. Go for the comfort and convenience.

the seats recline, its awesome. Great for a movie date as you can lift up the arm rest and sit right next to each other as you're leaned back and relaxed

Great locale for movies in this area. Metro station is literally right outside. Look for special rates at special hours since the theater is pricey.

It may seem odd to give an AMC 5 stars, but this is the most unique AMC I've ever been to. 1. When you book your seats you choose your exact seat location, like a broadway show. This means there is no need to get to the theater early. 2. The seats are super comfy leather easy chairs that have... More

Most comfortable movie seats in the world - once you've experienced these seats - it's hard to go back to normal movie theatre seats. We're spoiled at Courthouse and I like it.

Different from the usual theatre experience--a limited number of large, reclining seats. Extremely comfortable and adds to the viewing experience. The seats almost lie flat--we sat in the back, but sitting closer to the screen might be okay even if you usually don't like that in a conventional theatre. Expensive compared to most theatres, but seating is reserved and given... More

I already tried almost every single theater in Dc area and this one the best one. The beverages there are expensive though. You can lay down you chair and watch the movie like you are at your house, very comfortable.

This is one of the best cinemas I've been to. The seats are reclining leather and really comfortable. Not a bad seat in the cinema. Been hear many times and I will be going back. Only thing is they don't always show the latest films. You need to check what they are showing before turning up so your not disappointed.... More
